Who would have known...

that Starbucks would get SO popular from here!! We took a little trip down to Pike's Place Market yesterday and had such a blast. We stopped at the very first Starbucks and wouldn't you know there was a gospel group singing right out in front (although you can't tell by the photo). Pretty amusing we thought. Anyways, we had to buy a drink of course so Glen got his usual coffee and I got a Pumpkin Latte (first taste of Fall...yummy!). The market is full of seafood places, jewelry, flower venues, etc. Glen even bought me flowers :). Micah seemed to enjoy himself as well, he's such a good boy for the most part. We are enjoying every minute of parenthood...maybe because he's not a toddler yet (lol).

It's Official

"Stand still and consider the wonderous works of God."
Job 37:14b

Hello all! We started at our new church home last Sunday morning and it was a very special time for us. The two pastors and elders prayed over us, and then after the services the church held a welcome potluck with a cake for us and baby Micah. Our hearts are over-whelmed by the Lord's graciousness. We look forward to serving alongside the people here at Faith Bible Church. Thanks again for all your prayers. Hope you enjoy all the latest updates!

The Hand-Eater

The Micah Man...trying to eat his hand. Is this a sign of early teething perhaps? He is nine weeks old today! Maybe some of you moms out there can shed your wisdom on this?

Out and About Exploring

The other day Glen and I were able to finally get out and explore a little bit! We went to a place called Coulin Park by Lake Washington. It was really relaxing and quite beautimous...can't believe we live here :). It has been sunny everyday since we've been here, although we know the rains and overcastness will be approaching us soon. Boohoo!

Hello all...Glen and I arrived in Seattle last Wednesday evening but it has been incredibly busy for us since we got here. It is absolutely beautiful here and we love love love our new home!

Be bloggin' again soon! Love, G&S along with Micah and Daisy
